We ask a lot of our countertops. After all, what other surface in your home do you pound, chop, bump, scrub, and scratch on a daily basis -- all while still expecting it to maintain a newly installed appearance? Fortunately, today's technology has created an array of new countertop materials that look great and wear even better.
With so many choices, how do you choose? Mind your P's -- that is, personality, performance, and price, then follow our cues to help you select the countertop that best fits your lifestyle and home.
